I am very new to openldap so i need some help on that
suppose i created one group and added users as a member

in which attribute we can find user's group name
can anyone help me to get group name of a user?

Assuming you have created a tree structure like:

dn: cn=group_name,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com
cn: group_name
member: uid=user_name,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com

A search like this should return groups (cn's) that reference a user (dn):

ldapsearch <bind options> -b "ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com" \
  "member=uid=user_name,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" cn | grep '^cn:'

Depending on how you have deployed your ldap infrastructure, i.e. you have
installed an nss ldap shim, you can find unix group membership with:

groups <user_name>
